Spotlight on Luck

Are you generally a lucky or unlucky person?

Personally, I believe in making my own luck… or as the Roman philosopher Seneca stated over 2000 years ago, “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity”, or perhaps you prefer a more “modern” view; Thomas Jefferson said “I’m a great believer of luck. I’ve found that the harder I work, but more I have of it.”

If you’ve read any of my other blog posts, you no doubt know how lucky and proud I feel to be working for Specified Technologies, Inc. These feelings are never stronger than when the entire IMG_0203company comes together each year for our International Meeting (a special shout-out to Danielle Degerolamo for digging up this apropos photo from last year). As scores of people descend upon beautiful Somerville, New Jersey each year from around the world, it becomes clear that everyone feels lucky and has that same sense of pride working for such a great company… wow!

Anyway, getting back to my original point of creating your own luck… well, when I googled the above Thomas Jefferson quote, I came across this article…

Six Ways To Create The Luck That’s Eluded You

…which basically says exactly what I was planning on saying, so thank you Margie Warrell for saving me some brain power, I couldn’t have said it any better myself. I hope you enjoy it!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
